Commissions NOW!I'm in a bad way, and in some serious need of cash, asap!
If you've ever thought about commissioning me for something, now's the perfect time!
Sketches are quick and cheap, and I can usually get those done same-day.
Submit your requests through DA note, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'll do flat-rate sketches for DA-watchers for as long as I can:
$5 for super-quick, rough sketches
$10 for refined and shaded sketches
$15 for a splash of color
Paypal only for these ~ USD
email@example.com is my Paypal ID if you want to commission or donate. Every little bit helps!
Any sketch requested here can be upgraded to any of my other "completion stages" at a later time. All my regular commission info can be viewed HERE.
DangitGosh darn it ~ I'm away from DA for 2 weeks and already I have a pile of over 200 messages to go through. *sigh*
On a slightly more depressing note:
After being on the in house staff for only 5 days, my supervisor at Lisa Frank decided it "wasn't a good fit" and terminated my contract. After weeks of them "loving" the freelance work I did for them, admiring my "talent," and moving me halfway across the country, they just up and fired me after FIVE DAYS. They have completely unrealistic expectations of their artists and don't even give the courtesy of a 90-day probation period, unlike any NORMAL business would. Their communication stinks, and from what I could tell, the only person that worked there that didn't like me was my supervisor. All they want to hear is "yes m'am, it will be done," without knowing HOW it should get done, or a realistic idea of how long it takes.
I was fed nothing but lies and half-truths from management. I was told I was comi
Big NewsI got the job offer from Lisa Frank
so I'm packing up and moving to Tucson, Arizona!
It's all very exciting, and very stressful!
There are just so many things to think about and do before I have to BE there ready to work. Aaaaagh!
Well, at least I'll have my little dog, Olie, to keep me company.
He can tell there's something going on around here, and he's very confused...
Best way to Announce a Livestream?I've been doing a lot more Livestreaming lately,
and I was wondering if I took the time to announce on DA if anyone would even be interested in watching.
I've seen a few different announcement methods around:
Journal Posts & Deviation-edits seem to be the most common.
What method works best for you guys? What time of day/night are folks available to watch?
And would anyone even bother coming?
Upload OverloadJust a heads up for y'all.
I've finally been able to take a minute and go through all the stuff I've done and haven't uploaded to DA since my senior year in college. Final count is over 40 images....
Not to mention the fact that I haven't really been around DA in more than "lurk" form for the past few years, and now I'm pretty clueless about all the formatting changes. What is this Sta.sh thing in my journal here? Glugh?! I'm going to have to play with it....
In other news:
- I graduated from Ringling College and completed Thesis without dying. That was nearly 3 years ago D:
- My mouse, Peter, died about a year after I graduated.
- I got a puppy. His name is Olie. He just turned 2 in April. I will be posting photos
- I started keeping fish. Lots of success and fails. Currently have a desk-tank with a blue dragon-scale betta, 3 zebra danios, and a spotty-tail guppy. An earlier set of guppies had babies that I was abl
back at itI've been neglecting my online galleries for far too long, and I want to come back.
But there's soooooo much I have to update.
This is going to take... some time.
For now, let's start with bumping out that old old old old journal, eh?
journal bumphaven't had time to update my journal in a while and the previous one is no longer relevant...
I'll have to make a proper update later, but the short-hand version is:
"thesis thesis, busy busy."

Backup Contact ListSoooooo.....
My phone went through the wash a couple weeks ago, and I just got it replaced this weekend. I was able to save and transfer a few names & numbers from my old phone to the new one, but most of my contact list was lost.
I'm now attempting to compile a new list of names & numbers I can store someplace more safe/permanent in case this ever happens again.
If you're my friend and you'd like to be in my "phone tree" please send a note with your contact info! Thanks

old journal entry from winter:
uaggh! I don't even know how to write journals anymore D: I hope everyone is
deviantART on our Lucky 13As you get older, you may begin to see birthdays as a distinctive point in time. A time for reflection on past successes, past roadblocks, past lessons. I also see it as an opportunity to look forward, set goals, aim ridiculously high. I'm sure everyone's heard people joke about disliking getting older and lamenting another year passing, but not me. Not yet, at least. The wisdom and hard lessons I've had to learn over the years helps me map out my immediate future. I may stumble, sure, but I also have a lifetime of overcoming obstacles and analyzing achievements to guide my decisions. All I can do is keep learning and growing.
I feel much the same way about deviantART.
I don't need to tell you that a web property sticking around for 13 years is a rare thing, and it's not an accomplishment we take lightly. We owe our continued existence to all of you, and the passion and inspiration that emanate so naturally from the community, from the most successful professional to the mo
F.A.Q. TIME!!I get quite a few messages here on DA with various questions and requests. I don't have time due to work and family to answer all of them individually like I would like so I think a handy-dandy FAQ is in order. This way maybe I can answer a question before it's even asked and/or have a journal I can easily direct people to. So here we go!
Q: Can you give me any tips on how to draw/color,paint/whatever better?
A: The quick and easy answer is that there aren't any secrets to being able to draw well. I know it's not what people want to hear and everyone is looking for a magic trick that will instantly make them a better artist. The truth is that I have dedicated 1000s of hours to art in an effort to get better. I attended figure drawing classes, went to conventions and spent hours talking to other artists, and spent nearly every dime I had on books and art supplies. I lived it and breathed it. When you were out on a date or playing video games or seeing movies I was probably home d

Using Cross-Figure With Genesis 8Cross-Figure Genesis 3 is a program that allows you to use Genesis 3 Female hair and clothing on Genesis 3 Male and vice versa without using AutoFit. There are some extra steps using it with Genesis 8, but you don't have to be able to use a modeling program (unless you want to make a better ID morph after you're done, but we'll get to that).
Here's a YouTube version. You'll have to turn your sound up. Sorry.
Genesis 8 Male and Female
Instructions G8F to G8M:
Load Genesis 8 Female into the scene.
Load a piece of clothing or hair onto Genesis 8 Female that you wish to convert.
Go to the Parameters tab. If you do not have one, you can create one by right-clicking near your existing tabs and finding it in the list.
Click on the tiny button at top left of this

Warning/Call out Journal - TheChaosRuler (UPDATE5)WARNING: LOTS of swearing and opinions down below. Read at your own risk.
This has gone on for long enough, and I am sick and tired of all of it.
CALL OUT/WARNING JOURNAL AGAINST; TheChaosRuler
Any updates and added information will be provided near the bottom of this journal.
DO NOT ATTACK OR APPROACH HIM. NOT ONLY IS HE NOT WORTH YOUR TIME OR EFFORT, BUT IT COULD GET YOU BANNED. MY ADVICE IS JUST AVOID HIM, BLOCK IF NECCESSARY. DO NOT DO ART TRADES/REQUESTS FOR THIS GUY.
It is about fucking time I brought all of this to light. You stopped talking to me and un-watched me, so I can only assume you want nothing else to do with me. I don't have to defend you anymore. We're not friends, and now it's time to warn others so that they don't have to go through the same BULLSHIT you put me and so many other people through.
A little journal for
